You’ll recall that during Tiger Woods’ last disastrous attempt to return to play on the PGA Tour, I made a tongue-in-cheek suggestion that he might look at another golfer’s swing (one Hideki Matsuyama) and perhaps ask him how to do it, if he insisted on a planted-heel golf swing.
You also know that the MCS “Ultimate Leverage” is the swing model that I built for him and which has turned out to be “the” swing model for MCS swingers and will remain so until a better model arises, the likelihood of which occurrence is, in my opinion, between highly unlikely and impossible.
I was sent this article on how to increase driving distances, and I was rather amused reading through it, because you’ll remember what Jerry “Big Toilet” Crowell has to say about the MCS swing theory – that he will only use Trackman and MCS swing theory when swinging or teaching the swing.
So, the article which I’m linking was amusing in that as I read off the points contained in the part I’m quoting, I was hearing Big Toilet’s voice in my head saying, “MCS & Trackman…”
Has anyone see the action of one of the longer-hitting pros on the PGA Tour, one Charlie Beljan?
I wanted to take a look at Brandon Hagy’s swing, as he currently leads the Tour in driving distance (321 yards per drive), but he is not very widely known, so there isn’t much video on Youtube with which to work.

Until now, that is… it’s the same reason you can’t learn another person’s swing model – no one is explaining it accurately or, in some cases even, correctly.
So, the most I’ve done in recent years is look to see if he’s made any major (or even minor) changes since then.
